Arrangements set for coaching great Pete Pompey, who died on Friday at 75

The family of coaching legend Pete Pompey, who died on Friday at 75, has announced plans for his viewing and a celebration of his life.

Pompey, who spent 31 years as a football and basketball coach at Dunbar and Edmondson, and was an educator for 37 years in Baltimore City, died of pneumonia and had been living with Alzheimer's disease since 2011.

The arrangements for Pompey's public viewing will take place from noon to 4 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 31 at Wylie Funeral Home in Randallstown. His "Celebration of Life" will take place Monday, Feb. 1 at Morgan State University's Murphy Fine Arts Center.  The wake will start at 3 p.m. with the service to follow at 4.

The family has requested that anybody who attended Edmondson, Dunbar or Northwestern -- the three schools where he taught -- should represent their schools by wearing school colors.
